Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Atmospheric High looks out of this world

Dundalk stages the first Irish race meeting of the week this evening.

Irish racing fans have been a bit starved for action this week, but it's that time of the week when Dundalk rolls around again and Timeform's Irish team highlight three win selections...

"Atmospheric High looks favourably treated by the terms of this race and a bold bid looks certain."

Typhoon Lily cost a pretty penny as a yearling and shaped with plenty of promise on her racecourse debut when third of 13 to Opera Gloves in a one mile maiden at this course in December. Despite being somewhat unconsidered in the market that day, Typhoon Lily travelled well and kept on after challenging approaching the final furlong. The bare form of that effort sets a clear standard in this contest and, given she is entitled to progress, she looks worth supporting to go one better at the second time of asking

La Belle Maison has failed to get off the mark in a handful of starts to date, but she has shown a fair level of form in the process and has finished runner-up over this course and distance on two occasions, producing her best effort to date when chasing home Lady of Kenmare last time, leading until well inside the final furlong. The blinkers worn that day are kept on and she looks to have been a good opportunity to get off the mark this evening.

Atmospheric High is one of those horses that thrives on Dundalk's polytrack surface, as proven by the fact he scored at the course on three occasions in 2012. The third of those victories came in a minor event over a mile-and-a-half in December, where he stayed on well to deny Manuka by a neck. He has run creditably on both outings since that victory, shaping well when third to Gretzky (winner again since) in an amateur handicap last time, keeping on for minimal assistance having been set a lot to do. He looks favourably treated by the terms of this race and a bold bid looks certain.
